Prudential Gallo Realtors welcomes Benjamin as sales agent

The agents and staff of Prudential Gallo Realtors recently welcomed Sales Agent Cindy Benjamin to its Bethany Beach office. Benjamin, a resident of Ocean View, brings 16 years of experience in real estate sales.

She grew up in Minnesota, married in 1973 and moved to Baltimore, Md. In 1994, she and her husband, Don, bought a small cottage in Ocean View, and they brought their four children there in summers. In 2005, she sold the cottage and bought a larger home, which in 2010 became her primary residence.

In 1996, she began her real estate career in Maryland. She was working as a special-education teaching assistant at the time, and for several years she worked in both careers.

“To fully serve my real estate clients, I resigned from education,” she said. “It was a difficult decision, as I loved working with children.”

While in Maryland, she worked with many military clients. Being prepared and ready to meet with them was essential, she said, as their time for a home search was limited. Giving her full attention to buyers and sellers and keeping them updated through the process was important to her, she said.

“Excellence is my only standard,” Benjamin said. “I strive to make the purchase or sale of a home stress-free, easy to understand, educational and, at times, even fun. My goal is to exceed your expectations and provide you with excellent service throughout our relationship.”

“We are so happy to welcome Cindy,” Mary Cerami, broker and sales manager of the Bethany Beach office, said. “She is an energetic, detail-oriented sales agent who makes sure that every detail of a transaction is considered and dealt with properly. She is a thorough professional!”

Benjamin said she is active in her church, singing with a choir and working in the soup kitchen. She likes to read and to learn, she said — she is a novice gardener and enjoys the learning process.

Benjamin’s family is close. Three of her children live in the Baltimore area and one lives in Southern Maryland.

To reach Benjamin at her 33292 Coastal Highway office, call her at (302) 537-2616 or e-mail her at
